    That's Fario's call Neil. We have a bit of a showdown on the Witels going here and I don't think he'd appreciate spectators when he gets his @rse whipped

    from what Mario has said, there doesn't seem to be any love lost there either.

    Fario reminds me of my old uncle Harold (six times removed) who was born without a liver- the first thing I remember about Fario, from when I met him at the Piscator after a days fishing- was that he couldn't handle his booze and left before I was even warmed up. I reckon I could take that Brad Pitt wannabe and bury his nose into the Witels ground- rule number one is that all packs are to be equally weighted (say 20kgs) before the trap is started and no sissie flotation devises will be allowed for the swims- if you cant hold your pack above your head then you deserve to sleep in wet clothes...

    Uhm, RABs are not dry flies, but technically, yes, Neil showed me quite a lot!!

    I've even been a dry fly purist myself

    (Then I learnt the error of my ways from Mario)
    Hey, please be clear on this one!!!! Amateur?? Not the best??? Or the nymphing thing???

    Sjo, this is a Lunch Bar moment of note!!!!

    Sorry, I forgot, I did teach you how to fish a dry fly across and downstream on the swing (submerged)

    RAB's? That's a whole new thread topic. But I'll bet there are one or two in your flybox now Chris is the only guy I know who does not use an original, huge RAB. He uses a BLAB
